Luckily, in a video uploaded to her 219k TikTok followers, a petite woman shared the brands that offer the best jeans and skirt options for her frame.
“Let’s talk about where to shop if you are too small for standard sizing,” fashion enthusiast Elizabeth Fortmeyer said.
“I’ve had this problem for a long time and I get a lot of comments from you guys saying you do as well.”
First, she spoke about the fashion brand Zara.

“I get most of my jeans at Zara because their size zero is a true size zero. They don’t do vanity sizing in their jeans. However, their dress pants [and] things like that, different story.
“I’ve never found a skirt at Zara that fits me, however, Zara tags all have a triangle or circle. If it’s a triangle that means it fits smaller.”
When it comes to purchasing skirts that fit properly, Fortmeyer’s go-to is Superdown.
Their skirts are as small as a size XXS.

Fortmeyer also cited retailer & Other Stories as a great place to find pants if you’re petite.
“This is where I get most of my dress pants because their zero is also a true size zero like Zara’s jeans,” she said.
She added that it’s also where she gets a lot of her skirts, stating.
“Some stuff in & Other stories is honestly so small that I have to size up in it, which has never happened to me in my life. So definitely check them out,” she said.
Viewers in the comments section of Fortmeyer’s video left many suggestions for clothing companies that carry pieces well suited to petite women.

“You should try Aritzia. Their stuff goes to an XXS and they carry 23 waist jeans/pants I think,” wrote one person.
“Try Asian brands!!” a second advised.
“Hollister! They stock a 23 waist and it seems to be true to size,” a third said.
“American Eagle jeans fit me pretty well but their skirts are WAYYYY too big,” an additional person commented.
“[I] recommend PacSun and Motel Rocks for more casual stuff!! PacSun denim goes down to a 22 and the Motel Rocks XXS is true to size.”
